Test sites

Here is the list of sites:

  • All the Ramsar sites located at less than 100km from the Med coast  (of which 4 are smaller than 25 ha but will be mapped in order to have all the Ramsar sites)
  • All the additionnal coastal wetlands (mainly lagoons, estuaries, salt pans, sebhket, freshwater lakes, dams)

The work was based on :

  • the Ramsar Database
  • the IBA database
  • Books published in the 90's and called "a Directory of wetlands of Africa/Middle-East/Paleartic"
  • Specific field reports for less-known countries like Syria or Lybia
